...one of the few times a world war game has acknowledged a German as a human being...

A human being that had full knowledge of the fact that their government was mass-exterminating Jews, Roma, homosexuals, the handicapped, and any other group of people that didn't fit into their eugenic insanity of creating a master race? Are those the people that you are worried about as not being portrayed with "humanity" and "compassion"? There's a terribly small violin playing somewhere, but for the life of my I just can't seem to hear it over the sound of wailing in the death camps.

Wrong war there professor. You're thinking of World War II not I. A war that happened 30 years in the future. By the way how much the average German knew and how much the rank and file enlisted soldier knew is a debated topic, with lots of variations according to where they were stationed and where they lived.

The same people who fought in WWI were the people who sat by while their neighbors were rounded up in cattle cars 20 years later. This idea of portraying early 20th century Germans as anything other than the shitheads they were is historical revisionism at its best. But let's disregard the fact that these guys were the ones that developed weaponized chlorine gas to use on the battlefield, and instead romanticize history and show how this one guy didn't actually want to fight.

Guess how many French/British/Serbian etc... didn't want to fight but didn't have any choice when the Germans decided to come trotting into their countries?


Fitting user name there dude, but just relax, chill out, it was a long time ago. While some germans at the time were jerks and asses, you cant blame all of them for the mistakes, they were in both wars under an oppressive goverment.

You my friend need to bush up on your world history. The support for both wars from the German citizenry was extremely high until they started losing.

You are a horribly misinformed, vitrolic, troll of a human being. How is hating an entire nation for the sins of their masters any different from how the Nazi's felt about the Jews you asshole??

I don't hate Germany, as a nation or as a people, but I do hate the fact that they have attempted to gloss over WW1, WW2, and the Holocaust in their history books and popular culture. And I'm certainly not going to feel a bit of sadness about Germans from the time period being portrayed as what they were, warmongering, racial-purist assholes.

You feel free to be butthurt about that all you want, but next time you are in DC, go spend the afternoon in the Holocaust museum, and see whether or not you still care about how much humanity early 20th century Germans are portrayed with in a video game.

Other than the final chapter, I really enjoyed DX:HR Director's Cut -- set design and music were outstanding. Characters were a little cardboard, but still interesting. Looking forward to a trilogy, but doubtful the impact between games will be anything noteworthy. We've been promised that sort of thing many times before...

Yeah that last chapter killed it for me as well. In spite of the consolitas it suffered from, some of which could be disabled in the settings, it was fun and the story was interesting and the game play was pretty solid minus the boss fights, right up until they had to put "zombies" in it which is pretty much all that last level really is.

Yeah I remember him getting busted using alts in one of those last discussions, and Blue chimed in and said that the posts from the other account were coming from the same IP as Derek's, and the "other poster" claimed he was VPNd into Derek's network.

Found it, this was his alt that Blue called out

I want this project to succeed, and not turn into a p2win game, but there are very valid reasons no one wanted to work with Chris Roberts for the last fifteen years.

I'll reserve my judgement for the final release, and happily pay full retail for a finished product if it is worth getting.

Half their forum threads concerning this delay are smattered with people shitting on Elite. I think the reality is setting in, that there are some very valid reasons no one wanted to work with Chris Robertson, and that a kickstarter promising the stars was the only way he was ever going to get back into the industry.

These guys are either completely incapable of actually estimating development time, or their development updates are blatantly false. Have they hit a single target deadline at all?

Spent 2 hours on it. It's not bad for $10. It's easy to play with kids running around because each match ends very quickly.

You get more control of the units as you get further in the game. The assault troops for example allow you to use jump jets to jump across lanes but only after u get that upgrade. In the beginning they are just a melee unit that moves forward a little quicker.

The standard marine can fire at adjacent lanes which is their "thing". You get grenades for them as well and a charge ability that lets you stun other units. (usually melee)

I upgraded to the dreadnaught early but it doesn't stay very long, it seems to have a certain amount of energy and when you use it all it just shuts down and drops into the floor.

Terminators are dlc which sucks. For the marines you can deploy tactical marines, assault, and devestator. You can also get bikes, dreadnaughts and a variety of other hq powers. There are also 2 other campaigns to purchase as dlc which look like ork campaigns.

I'm guessing they'll add in all the other marine chapters (at least the majors) and maybe some additional races.

I haven't been able to find a MP game yet...prob not a great sign.

There's no way in hell I'd pay $10 bucks for a plants vs zombies clone with $.99-$2.99 DLC for units on my iPad much less on my pc.

Fucking hate that GW gives their IP over to devs like these.

I wonder how the map rotation is going to work with 4 vs 1. Are there going to be multiple different giant monsters to choose from, or do the players chase the same giant monster on different maps?

I wonder if you will feel the same in January of 2015 if they don't get around to releasing the dogfight module this calendar year, because so far, they've really shown no reason for anyone to believe that they are capable or making a deadline

If they ever actually stop adding stretch goals, and actual release a game they better not cut or modify a single feature. Because if they do, the people who are pumping money into this scheme are going to go apeshit and murder their families when the disappointment sets in.

No one is.

I guess I must be misunderstanding the part where you pay the devs to play an unfinished game and participate "in the ongoing development cycle."
